Renewed Washstand

Hi all! Been raining here for what it seems  forever, one thing about the rain that I do like is I don’t have to water the flowers but now I’d gladly water them if we could just see some sun soon!
While it’s crummy outside I decided to paint my washstand another color…this is what it looked like before I first painted it. Okay but needed updated real bad.

I first painted it Valspar Café Blue, I loved it, I left the top wood and just darkened it with some brown paint using it very lightly.

Now it’s painted Valspar Polar Star a very light gray. You can see the difference there between the corner of the hutch and the washstand, the hutch is painted Cottage White!
I also have to get some hardware for it, I do have a glass knob on the door.

I even distressed it a lot more than I usually do and I’m liken it! I have a detailed sander but think I have to invest in a palm sander to do better on the sides of the piece.

Now I have to wax it!

Maybe decorate it differently too but I sort of like the old bottles on the tray.

Congrats!!! 500! The washstand is beautiful. I have a palm sander and I love it - you would use it on many projects ;)
It's rained a lot here lately too - NC. My garden is happy happy happy. We're finally heading to the pool today! So glad the sun is out!

I love the soft blue you used on this piece and it looks great with the stained top. I really like this looks and I am thinking of doing the same on my furniture redo scheduled for next month. Thanks for the inspiration.

I love seeing your finds. Now I have two little mugs that match your chicken pitcher. Oh, you're going to love Wuthering Heights! If you can, try to see the very old movie made in the late 30s I think, starring Lawrence Oliver and Merle Oberson. I absolutely love it and it makes me cray each time I see it.
Thanks for popping in to see me.
be a sweetie,
Shelia :)
